Jeopardy!'s Alex Trebek Reveals He's Been Diagnosed With Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer

Alex Trebek is a world-renowned television personality who is known by many Canadians and Americans as the host of the popular Jeopardy! show ever since 1984.

Alex also hosted many other television shows, such as The Wizard of Odds, Double Dare, High Rollers, Battlestars, Classic Concentration and To Tell the Truth.

Yesterday, on March 6, 2019, he shared very bad news with his loyal supporters in a speech on public television.



"I have some news to share with all of you, and it's in keeping with my longtime policy of being open and transparent with our Jeopardy! fan base," he began his announcement. "I also wanted to prevent you from reading or hearing some overblown or inaccurate reports regarding my health. So therefore, I wanted to be the one to pass along this information."

"Now, just like 50,000 other people in the United States each year, this week I was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer," he continued. "Now normally, the prognosis for this is not very encouraging, but I'm going to fight this, and I'm going to keep working. And with the love and support of my family and friends and with the help of your prayers also, I plan to beat the low survival rate statistics for this disease."

"Truth told, I have to! Because under the terms of my contract, I have to host Jeopardy! for three more years!" even joked 78-year-old Alex. "So help me. Keep the faith and we'll win. We'll get it done. Thank you."

Take a look at a video in which Alex Trebek, a popular television host, shared the bad news with his audience. Alex and his family are in our thoughts, keep fighting!
